Plot synopsis:

Initially apprehensive when her boss insists she meets with one of his most important clients, single mom Cherie is relieved and excited when she meets charismatic Ethan. The influential businessman defies expectations and sweeps Cherie off her feet. But at the end of the night, when the two are alone together, he reveals his true, violent nature. Battered and terrified, she flees for her life, beginning a relentless game of cat-and-mouse with a bloodthirsty assailant hell-bent on her utter destruction. In this edge-of-your-seat dark thriller, Cherie finds herself in the crosshairs of a conspiracy stranger and more evil than she could have ever imagined.

I swear the synopsis doesn't do it justice.

Has anyone else seen this movie? I just watched it and while it's not a perfect feminist horror film, I was pleasantly surprised by it.

What were your thoughts? I don't want to spoil too much, but it might be the first movie that I've ever seen that deals with menstruation in a positive light.

Lots of interesting fourth wall breaking, so many casual mentions and references to tampons/menstruation/etc that I have never seen before in a movie.

It's also very restrained with showing violence against women. The main female character is being stalked by a male, however any violence against her is not directly shown, instead the camera is shifted away.

It deals a lot with the bullshit men put women through from being talked down to at work, being harassed by drunk assholes, men ignoring women in danger, police not talking women's complaints against violent men seriously, the lack of attention society pays to WoC who go missing, and a bunch of other little things that I've almost never seen discussed in a movie before.

Also, the dog being a girl as well was the icing on the cake for me.

The 1/10 reviews on iMDB are an unexpected bonus. They all reek of big incel energy.

Just started watching it but you could have warned me about the <giant Tim living out a Tims wet dream|| in the beginning of the movie. So tired of seeing that crap, I almost turned it off.

I must have not been paying attention, I don't remember a tim character. But you have my sincerest apologizes. I would never knowingly recommend a movie with a TIM.

If you finished it, what were your thoughts?

Edit: i totally wasn't paying enough attention. I went back and it's super obvs now. Ugh. Stop casting TIMs actors as women in single scenes. I completely forgot that character even existed lol

Other than the giant Tim that they constantly referred to ash she, I thought it was decent? The blood angle was interesting, as was the balance thing..
